    Rose: I've got to say, the group of people, the experience that influenced my work more than anything else was when I was young man, I ended up working in a program teaching returning Vietnam vets who wanted to get into college.  And that experience was profound for me because it put me flat in front of a bunch of people who had to develop a set of skills in writing for the academy quickly, and their lives depended upon it, almost literally, and that really was the important influence, I think, in shaping the way I think about the teaching of writing.
